Adobe announces new facility to be built in Lehi

Software giant Adobe Systems Inc. announced plans to build a campus in Lehi that will add hundreds more jobs to the state within the next 10 years. Adobe, which acquired Orem-based Omniture Inc. for $1.8 billion last year, brought its employees from its Orem campus to celebrate the new location near the Cabela's store off of I-15. The company expects to add as many as 350 more jobs with the likelihood of bringing another 1,000 jobs to the state over the next decade.Lehi city leaders believe Adobe will be a catalyst in bringing not just more high-tech jobs to the area, but will give other businesses, such as restaurants and hotels, a boost. Construction is expected to begin sometime next year with the 230,000-square-foot facility opening in the fall of 2012. The Deseret News
